Number Of U.S. Gun Makers Refusing Sales To Gov’t In ‘Firearms Equality Movement’ Triples In Two Weeks

On February 22, “Right Views” reported that a growing number of firearm companies have suspended the sale of guns to states, counties, cities and municipalities that restrict their citizens’ rights to own them.

In just two weeks, the number of companies participating in what has been named the “Firearms Equality Movement,” has more than tripled from 34 companies to 118.

The Police Loophole lists every company and links to the statements that each has released regarding their new policies.

Wilson Combat, a custom pistol manufacturer located in Berryville, Arkansas, joined the movement on February 28 stating the following:

“Wilson Combat will no longer provide any products or services to any State Government imposing legislation that infringes on the second amendment rights of its law abiding citizens. This includes any Law Enforcement Department, Law Enforcement Officers, or any State Government Entity or Employee of such an entity. This also applies to any local municipality imposing such infringements.”

Wilson lists the states included on its no sale policy as: California, Hawaii, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Washington D.C. and The City of Chicago, Illinois.

The statement also reads:

“Wilson Combat will in NO way support the government of these states or their anti-gun agenda that only limits the rights of law-abiding citizens. Wilson Combat will continue to supply any product and/or service they can legally sell in these states to all non-government affiliated citizens.”

Massachusetts to ban school bake sales

You are too fat! In fact, you’re not only fat, you’re out of shape. Check that – you’re not only fat and out of shape, but we need the government to whip our butts back into line and eat healthy, healthy healthy!

The solution? No cupcakes for you at school!

Boston Herald:

Bake sales, the calorie-laden standby cash-strapped classrooms, PTAs and booster clubs rely on, will be outlawed from public schools as of Aug. 1 as part of new no-nonsense nutrition standards, forcing fundraisers back to the blackboard to cook up alternative ways to raise money for kids.

At a minimum, the nosh clampdown targets so-called “competitive” foods – those sold or served during the school day in hallways, cafeterias, stores and vending machines outside the regular lunch program, including bake sales, holiday parties and treats dished out to reward academic achievement. But state officials are pushing schools to expand the ban 24/7 to include evening, weekend and community events such as banquets, door-to-door candy sales and football games.

The Departments of Public Health and Education contend clearing tables of even whole milk and white bread is necessary to combat an obesity epidemic affecting a third of the state’s 1.5 million students. But parents argue crudites won’t cut it when the bills come due on athletic equipment and band trips.

“If you want to make a quick $250, you hold a bake sale,” said Sandy Malec, vice president of the Horace Mann Elementary School PTO in Newtonville.

Maura Dawley of Scituate said the candy bars her 15-year-old son brought to school to help pay for a youth group trip to Guatemala “sold like wildfire.” She worries the ban “would seriously affect the bottom line of the PTOs.

“The goal is to raise money,” Dawley said. “You’re going to be able to sell pizza. You’re not going to get that selling apples and bananas. It’s silly.”

Even democrats Do Not Believe Obama’s Recess Appointment Lie

Only one Senate Democrat, out of 51 asked, told The Daily Caller that President Barack Obama was correct when he claimed the Senate was in recess Jan. 3. That’s the day Obama announced that he had exercised his executive authority to fill four top posts during a Senate recess.

Their GOP counterparts slammed Obama for claiming the power to decide when the Senate is in recess.

Democratic Sen. Tom Carper of Delaware said he believed the Senate was in a recess when Obama made the controversial appointments, according to a statement from his office.

A spokesperson for South Dakota Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson said he “supports the appointments,” but wouldn’t answer whether Johnson thought the Senate was in recess.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid endorsed Obama’s decision as a way around GOP opposition, but pointedly refused to say whether he thought the Senate was in recess.

Spokespersons for independent Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Joe Lieberman of Connecticut also did not respond to TheDC’s questions about whether they thought the Senate was in recess that day. Though they don’t belong to the Democratic Party officially, both Sanders and Lieberman caucus with Democrats in the Senate.

Obama claimed to have used his recess-appointment authority to appoint former Ohio attorney general Richard Cordray to oversee the banking sector, and three officials to serve on the National Labor Relations Board.

“I support President Obama’s decision to make sure that in these tough economic times, middle-class families in Nevada and across the country will have the advocate they deserve to fight on their behalf against the reckless practices that denied so many their economic security,” Reid said, without addressing Obama’s claim that the Senate was in recess.

“I support President Obama’s decision,” said Reid’s statement. “Republicans have been trying to make an end run around the law by denying this watchdog a leader … Republicans denied him an up-or-down vote in an effort to substantially weaken the agency.”

GOP legislators and constitutional lawyers say that because the White House doesn’t have the constitutional authority to decide when the Senate is in recess, Obama’s claimed appointments are invalid.

Gingrich: Romney is a ‘liar’

On the day of the Iowa caucuses, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich changed course away from his largely positive campaign, launching an attack on former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. In an interview on CBS’s “The Early Show” with Norah O’Donnell and Bob Schieffer, Gingrich called his opponent a liar and said his nomination would jeopardize the GOP’s 2012 election chances..

O’DONNELL: I have to ask you — are you calling Mitt Romney a liar?
O’DONNELL: You’re calling Mitt Romney a liar?
GINGRICH: Well, you seem shocked by it. Yes. What else can you say?
O’DONNELL: Why is he a liar?

Gingrich explained that Romney wasn’t being forthright about the true forces behind a political action committee working to get him elected, and added Romney wasn’t telling the truth about his record as Massachusetts governor.

“This is a man whose staff created the PAC and his millionaire friends fund the PAC,” Gingrich said. “He pretends he has nothing to do with the PAC. It’s baloney. He’s not telling the American people the truth. It’s just like his pretense that he’s a conservative. Here’s a Massachusetts moderate who has tax-paid abortions in ‘RomneyCare,’ puts Planned Parenthood in ‘RomneyCare,’ raises hundreds of millions of dollars of taxes on businesses, appoints liberal judges and wants the rest of us to believe he’s somehow magically a conservative.”

Gingrich has seen a recent drop in the polls after enjoying a brief period as the Republican front-runner. Gingrich was hit with millions of dollars in attack ads while he was atop the polls.
